Using PowerPoint with Switches in The Grid 2
PowerPoint slides can have buttons that do things, such as play a sound or a video clip, or jump to another slide. These buttons can be used by pressing a small number of keys. In turn, the keys can be generated by switches.
Download this zipped folder for the samples and the PPSwitch program to see how to create a switch accessible file with PowerPoint.
There are three PowerPoint files in the download:
Powerpoint with switches – 1.ppt
This describes a basic method for creating action buttons and pictures that can be activated with two key (Tab and Enter). The keystrokes can be generated from switches with our Switch Driver, or with any similar switch-to-keystroke utility. This method is very easy to use, but has some limitations. In particular, the highlighting is not very clear, and it only works with two switches.
Powerpoint with switches – 2.ppt
This describes a more sophisticated method that gives high visibility highlights and can be used with single switch auto scan as well as two switch scanning. It needs a special utility program (PPSwitch) to work.
Powerpoint with switches – 3.ppt
This describes how to use a switch to generate the necessary keystrokes, using Switch Driver for the simple method and PPSwitch for the more sophisticated scanning.
It also shows how to make the presentation more sophisticated by looping continuously, jumping between different presentations, and hiding the action buttons.
